Wizard Edvin chathead

Wizard Edvin is a wizard who helped repair the Mage Training Arena during his apprenticeship to Wizard Shug.[1][2] He was responsible for shaping the rune guardians' bodies using a specially created tool.[3]

He runs magical experiments, often using test subjects as guinea pigs, sometimes literally as in the case of Apprentice Clerval.[4] His latest experiment involves using portal magic, though he's lost at least one test subject to it.[5] Originally he had the portal maze filled with "surprises" like dangerous creatures and lava, but has gradually removed them to make the challenge purely mental.[6] He is on the verge of abandoning his experiment and moving on.[7]

He has a rivalry with Wizard Dougal. Apparently, he keeps trying to steal Dougal's ideas.[8]


  1. ^ Wizard Shug, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "So we used a great deal of essence to repair the bodies of the guardians. Edvin was in charge of that: he was my apprentice at the time."
  2. ^ Apprentice Clerval, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "All the wizards who helped rebuild the Mage Training Arena are still working here. There's Wizard Shug – he's usually asleep in the library – Wizard Dougal next door, and Wizard Edvin at the other end of the basement."
  3. ^ Wizard Edvin, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "My part in resurrecting the rune guardians was rebuilding the bodies. The bodies were badly damaged from whatever battle destroyed this place. I created a special tool for shaping the body of a guardian."
  4. ^ Apprentice Clerval, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Being a guinea pig WAS the experiment! I had a pellet craving for weeks!"
  5. ^ Wizard Edvin, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Every room has a small orb floating in a corner: you can use these to escape at any time. I had to install those after my previous test subjects went mad and left in an...unconventional manner. Let's get started, shall we?"
  6. ^ "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "It's not dangerous any more. I admit I was too ambitious at first. I had lava and deadly monsters and a few other 'surprises' for the trainees. I've gotten rid of all those now and I'm focusing on making it a purely mental exercise."
  7. ^ Wizard Edvin, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Hmm, it's still just not right. I think I've been working on it too long. Maybe it's time for a completely different project. I've been meaning to research the time discrepancies between the cardinal directions and their effects on teleporting..."
  8. ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Are you keeping tabs on me for Wizard Edvin? I KNEW IT! He's trying to steal my ideas. Well, I've had it up to here with his arrogance! Stop spying on me...and get out!"
